South actor Prabhas shot to the pinnacle of fame after headlining the Baahubali series of films. Saaho was a much-awaited movie as it is Prabhas' first project after Baahubali: The Conclusion. Directed by Sujeeth, Saaho also released in Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam, marking Shraddha Kapoor's debut stint in the Telugu film industry.
However, after its release, Saaho was criticised for plagiarism. French director Jerome Salle accused the makers of Saaho of copying his film Largo Winch just days after Lisa Ray alleged them of plagiarising illustrator Shilo Shiv Suleman's work.
